Bridal Veil falls flying high with the DJI Phantom Zenmuse H3-2D gimbal
Hi all. Enjoy the flight around Bridal Veil Falls using the brand new Zenmuse H3-2D Gimbal attached to the DJI Phantom Quadcopter. Thanks to my awesome daughter who let me follow her around for some great shots.
It was a bit windy and the canyon makes for some interesting flying in GPS mode. I decided to shoot with the GoPro in 2.7K mode with Protune turned on. Officially, this is my second flight with the gimbal attached... I did a test flight last night in my neighborhood at about 11:30, my new neighbors are probably going to regret moving in. I didn't quite have the daring ability to go all the way up the falls. It scares me a lot to be flying over water even though I have never had a single hiccup with this thing.
The cost of being on the bleeding edge of technology sometimes pays off.
If I can get enough practice in, and feel comfortable with it, I am hoping to make a trip to Yellowstone and southern Utah for some amazzzzing footage. Cheers.
